Important Garbage Pick-Up Information

Waste must be separated. Please only put recyclables into the cart with a blue lid. Waste Management would like you to place recyclables directly into the designated cart (not bagged). However, please bag your regular garbage.

Carts should be rolled to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your service day. Place your carts within 18 inches of the curb (carts should not be in the street). The arrows on the cart lids should be pointed towards the street. Cart lids should be closed. There must be at least three feet between the carts (as well as any fixed objects, such as a mailbox).

*If your carts are not properly placed, they will not be emptied. Only carts supplied by Waste Management will be emptied.

Grass clippings, wood scraps (must be untreated and unpainted), dirt, pieces of broken-off pavement and/or asphalt, and the like can be unloaded in the designated areas at the Department of Public Works complex located on Hamann Drive. The complex is open to the public Monday through Saturday during daylight hours.
